    each of France

    I'd like to know the proper position of "each". Which sounds better?

    1. Second, only one male student from each of France, Germany, Sweden and Syria enrolled in Photography core option.

    Re: each of France

    The first works; the second doesn't. I'd use a definite article before Photography.

    Re: each of France

    I'd like to see a verb somewhere too.

    Re: each of France

    I'm happy enough with 'enrolled'.

    1. Second, only one male student each from France, Germany, Sweden and Syria enrolled in Photography core option. Rephrase "Photography core option." It doesn't work in English.
    That way is more natural.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    I see your meaning now. Here, we almost always say "are enrolled" when the course has not been completed.

    Adding "the" helps. The capital P is confusing. I was wondering if Keannu means the photograpy core curriculum option.

    I've never heard the expression "core option," but I've never gone to school outside the US.

    The names of courses often have an initial capital.
